Polycera quadrilineata from Norway
Identification verified by Alexander Martynov
 

Identification is verified by Alexander Martynov (Zoological Museum of Moscow State University), Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Alexander Martynov: This is a colour variation of common North Atlantic species Polycera quadrilineata (Müller, 1776). It is an interesting case when some colour morphs of one species (e.g. Polycera quadrilineata) may approach colour variants of another species of the same genus (e.g. Polycera atra), significantly differs in other features.
 

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: I found this in Oslo fjord. It was only 2-3 cm long
